Dwight Howard now rocking a headband

Playing for the Los Angeles Lakers has inspired a few changes in Dwight Howard. If you have been watching the team’s their last two games, and as a DirecTV customer I certainly have not, then you may have noticed Howard has been rocking a new look. Yes, the big man has been wearing a headband the last two games. The headband trend first started on Sunday when Howard wore a stars...

Steve Nash Talks About His Friend, Mike D’Antoni

Nash is super excited to have Coach D’Antoni on his squad again. He took some questions from reporters about the acquisition and had the following to say on the topic: “I never would’ve predicted him being here as we get a chance to work together again, especially here with this team.

Does the Mike D’Antoni hire make sense for the Lakers?

I really have no idea. The entire situation in LA is pretty stunning. I’m not surprised they got rid of Mike Brown, as his pathetic offense seemed like a poor fit for a team Steve Nash. Nash flourished under Mike D’Antoni, but he was younger at the time and they never won anything. Meanwhile the Lakers decided not to bring back the best coach in NBA history – Phil Jackson....

Will Dwight Howard get in trouble for pulling a Rondo wearing upside down NBA logo headband?

One of our twitter readers Mike Gomez brought this pic to our attention. Interesting. Funny how Rajon Rondo isn't allowed to "disrespect" the Laker legend Jerry West, but a Laker is.  Could have just been an accident, but if he does it again the NBA better be on Howard and the Lakers. Speaking of Howard and the Lakers the damaged goods they traded, Andrew Bynum, had...

State of the Team: Change for the better?

LOS ANGELES -- "Brown is a good coach 314 regular-season wins don't lie. He actually has a full season this year to show it. Let him." I wrote that at the end of last week's "Three Thoughts"; I didn't know it was also going to be the end of Mike Brown. I still stand by what I wroteMike Brown is a good coach. He's just not the right coach for...
